Home Run Derby 2012: Mark Trumbo Cracks Dingers

I've fallen hopelessly behind such that I'm only now writing about Mark Trumbo's second round as Jose Bautista's second round is underway. Trumbo is already finished; Bautista came after him. I am not writing about the future. That would be the opposite of falling hopelessly behind, unless I've fallen behind in how far ahead in the future I'm writing about.

Trumbo and Carlos Beltran each hit seven home runs in the first round. Beltran hit five in the second round and Trumbo just hit six, meaning Beltran is eliminated from contention and Trumbo needs to hope that Jose Bautista sucks real bad. Usually having to hope for Jose Bautista to suck is a losing proposition. Bautista hit 11 home runs in the first round and Trumbo finished with a combined total of 13, so with three home runs Bautista would eliminate Trumbo and face Prince Fielder in the championship. Hey what do you know, all three of these guys are American Leaguers. Does the National League even have home runs or do they only ever see them during interleague play?

Look at all of that informative writing! I have kept you up to date on the 2012 MLB Home Run Derby! Mark Trumbo hit some dingers and there's a chance he could survive to hit some more dingers soon.
